Local Pokémon Go players came to the Mississippi Riverwalk on March 22 to celebrate Pokémon Go Community Day.

Players were on the lookout for the grass type Pokémon Treecko.

Along with the increased amount of that specific Pokémon appearing, an alternate colored “shiny” form of that Pokémon was released, its most evolved form was be able to learn an event exclusive move, and certain in game boosts were active.

During this Community Day, Treecko’s most evolved form, Sceptile, would learn the powerful grass type move, Frenzy Plant; the darker green “shiny” form of Treecko was released; and players were able to hatch in game eggs four times faster than usual.
